Still completely unknown in Western Europe in the eighties, pianist Grigory Sokolov was a rising star from Russia. With Sokolov, we discover a unique, powerful and highly characteristic world of sound. The master allowed Bruno Monsaingeon to film him one evening in November 2002, at the Théâtre des Champs Elysées in Paris. In minimalist lighting which amplifies the mystery surrounding him, Sokolov gives a recital of works by Beethoven, Komitas and Prokofiev, with many encores. We let you be the judge! Programme: Ludwig Van Beethoven Piano Sonata No. 9 in E Major, Op. 14 No. 1 - Ludwig Van Beethoven Piano Sonata No. 10 in G Major, Op. 14 No. 2 - Ludwig Van Beethoven Piano Sonata No. 15 in D Major, Op. 28 - Sogomon Komitas Six Dances - Sergei Prokofiev Piano Sonata No. 7 in B-flat Major, Op. 83
